Best restaurant ever! Super cute, trendy restaurant tucked away in some woods directly on a river. Amazing food, fabulous drinks and the service was wonderful! I would recommend anyone to try this restaurant. I order the salted beers and marinated tofu. They offer lots of options for people with dietary restrictions. —Heather P.
For anyone seeking a truly memorable and delicious culinary experience, I'd strongly recommend planning a trip to the Alvah Stone ASAP. I have eaten here 6-8 times and each meal is somehow better than the previous. Growing up in Philadelphia and currently living in NYC means Food is a serious topic and criticism comes easily.
Unfortunately for my east-coast agenda, I'm having a lot of trouble finding anything to nitpick about the Alvah Stone. It starts and ends with the freshest, hand-selected most extraordinary locally-sourced ingredients. And rarely can you couple that with breathtaking scenery that is the waterfall that the restaurant overlooks as you are housed in the historic Montague Mill building. —Nathan B.
I rarely write reviews but I had to take a moment to give them some serious compliments. I've eaten at this restaurant many times over the years---ever since they opened. The unique and commendable thing is that they CONSTANTLY tweak and improve and change their offerings. The staff and the chef never EVER cease to impress me and the friends and family that I bring are jealous that we have such an outstanding place to eat, tucked away in the hills of Montague, set beside one of the most romantic dining locations in Western Mass....
The menu is a perfect balance of sweet and savory and the bartenders are next level. They also make a point of weaving our local farmers' produce into their offerings, which matters to me, a great deal. I think I might make this a monthly standing reservation...! —Eric M.
I hosted a baby shower here for a group of ~30 and the Alvah Stone was GREAT on all levels - I'd definitely recommend it for others planning events around this size. It could hold a pretty sizable crowd for a cocktail party and it looked like max seated capacity would be around 50 -- and would get bigger once you started using the beautiful patio. Ken, their events manager, was easy to work with and communicative. The prices were fair and they were willing to work within our budget and preferences. The day-of staff were on top of everything and rolled with the flow of the event! This included a bunch of guests showing up ~20 minutes early and milling around (sorry! carpools!). If it stressed them out they did a great job of not showing it. —Chris K.
Hands down THE BEST. If they ever disappear, I will weep.
Every special occasion meal- Alvah.
Every date night- Alvah
We've never had a negative meal or experience here.
We are warmly welcomed, treated like family, and blown away by the flavors. EVERY DAMN TIME.
I could live here. —Sarah E.
I've had lunch here a couple of times and always enjoyed the food and setting. Had dinner last night the first time before a show at the Shea.
I was very impressed the liver mousse was excellent and a bit different, I had the monk fish and it was out of the world. Not overcooked with a subtle coating and sauce. I did ask for some bread which was brought promptly you need something for the sauce. Service was fine very nice room. Didn't have time for dessert but have had the salted caramel custard before and it is very tasty.
Owner came by was he was very nice. Best meal i have had in quite a while. —Bill P.
The food here is so good. Everything on the menu is worth eating and the staff is great. I have been coming since it opened and it just keeps getting better each year. Keep up the great cooking! —Aaron Poritz
It was a challenge to find in the dark, but well worth the effort. Good wine selection, intriguing entrees, first class attention to detail in the preparation, sensible serving sizes, intelligent and friendly service. I'll have to come again during the day, because my guess is that it's a pretty spectacular setting -- at night I could only hear the mill stream. —Timothy Peierles, Google Local Guide
